Audrey E. Richardson
Audrey E. Richardson died in the first hour of, April 3, 2021. She was born January 20,1923 in the small town of New Iberia, Louisiana, and was a vibrant ninety-eight years old.
Her formative years were spent in the deep South followed by nursing school at Hotel Dieu in New Orleans. At the onset of World War II, she became a Navy nurse and met her future husband George Richardson, a Coast Guard Officer. After the war, he became a pioneering engineer in the offshore drilling industry centered in Southern Louisiana and later in Houston. Though Audrey occasionally traveled the world with George on business trips, she remained connected to her Cajun roots.
She was a truly remarkable woman: a devoted wife, a caring, ever-giving mother, and a true friend to all who knew her. An avid Saints fan, card player (poker was her favorite) and great cook, her Southern Cajun heritage prevailed. Her favorite memories included days at the beach, dancing the night away, songs by Frank Sinatra and her annual trips to Las Vegas with her son-in-law and grandsons. Her warmth, wisdom, wit and never-ending compassion were inspiring.
Her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many friends will miss her dearly and thank her for her lifetime of giving. Please be sure to read a more detailed version of this tribute under the obituaries section at BradshawCarter.com
